MONTFORD POINT MARINES
THE FIRST BLACK MARINES

Montford Point Remembered


Step by step you led the way
Your hardship and sacrifice gave dawning to a brighter day.
Your life, your death, your screams, your tears
May have been long ago, but remembered through the years.

You made it this far,
But lost many along the way.
So many unknown names and faces
Became the stepping stones for us in these high places.

Those of you that are left
Don’t think you are a faded memory.
We remember your past
And what you did to set us free.

Montford Point Marines
We all stand and salute you.
For giving without being asked
For doing what was right and true.

The opportunity may not come around
When we can repay our debt,
But let our accomplishments and success
Make you have no regrets.

Let us walk forward together
Young and old Marines side by side,
And fight whatever battles may come
Wearing our Eagle, Globe and Anchor with pride!
